    Great choices.

    If I wasn't looking for perf I would consider the One for sure. It's the lack of perf on the Kangaroo that is making me lean towards the T2 though I love the idea of using the Roo skin :D

    I think the Multitech will be the perfect hot weather 'jacket'.

    Looking forward to hearing about them.

    Hi Spidi,

    I have a ton of your gear and am looking for an overpant that I can commute with here in the summer months. In the US we get the NL5, which seems good, but I also saw that you sell the Summer FIT Tex pants that look to be good as well. I can't get those in the US, but can order them from overseas for a very good price. My question is, which would be good better for commuting to work with my jeans on underneath? Also, which size? For reference I wear a size 52 in your JP3 suit and have a 32" waist. Thanks.

    I am looking to get the 365 Ergo Pro jacket, and I am 5'8" (172.72 cm) with a 38" chest (96.52cm) so it looks like I am pretty much in the middle of a "Medium" according to the size chart. Just want to confirm that it is correct in that it fits true to the size chart.

    Also, how much additional room for layering would there be? I might be looking fit an electric vest under all the lining in the extreme cold.

    Hi Cru.

    Summerfit is more simple-construction than NL5, featuring much less mesh compare to NL5.
    Moreover , you got standard Hip and Knee protectors in NL5 (have to buy separately in Summerfit).
    Regarding the fit, neither NL5 nor Summerfit are over pants; so, if you use them over your casual pants, take them one size more.
    If you don't use them over casual pants, these are your size:
    NL5 : L
    Summerfit: 34


    Thanks again for your interest

    Hi Keiji

    Yes size "M" will be good on you.
    Regarding additional room, you should be comfortable with additional lining.

    Gah, I have to stop. Just ordered two pairs of carbo six gloves (short and long), also a pair of sport coupe gloves, the hurricane pants and a size-up of the VTM pants...

    Okay, no more motorcycle gear spending for a while now!

    Matteo, did your PM inbox fill up? You stopped responding mid-conversation a month ago.

    Hi Matteo,

    Hate to bother you with this again, but any chance you could give some clarification with regards to certification of the XPD boots?

    The XP-7 boots seem to have errors in their specs. For instance, EN3886 they mention is a welding standard...

    Would you be able to find out what they were actually certified to, or forward this question to someone who can?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: The tag on the boots themselves and the mention of EN13595 are correct.

    Hi ranmafan,

    XPD boots XP7 are CE certified as per law EN13595, at level 2. This is what you also have on the certification label inside the boots.

    The boots can also achieve different standards of certification (even for welding).
    The important aspect is not to misinform consumer: in this case XP7 boots have achieved a high level of certification for motorcycle boots, that's what gives it an additional value.

    Hope everything is clear, please come back with more questions whenever you have doubts, we're glad to help consumers to understand better these norms, we know they're too difficult to comprehend, especially for a non-european consumer.



    Thanks again for your interest

    I sent him a pic of the tags inside the boots; I think it's all straight now. They're clearly (and properly) labeled as Level-2 certified boots.

    Yes, the misunderstanding is all mine, I apologize for making a fuss there.

    The "EN3886" part must be a typo, but everything else makes total sense now.

    Hi Matteo,

    May I ask why the XP7 WRS boot was discontinued in the US? I realize I could order it overseas and have it sent, but that would cost $400+.

    Hi 9mm

    that has been replaced in Europe by XP5 WRS
    http://www.xpdboots.com/jspxpd/products.jsp?id=40&name=XP5-S WRS&catid=1

    Here you go
    http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/1/1/36/43345/ITEM/Spidi-XP5-S-WRS-Boots.aspx

    There're still few pieces of XP7 WRS around Europe, but you can't find good deals cause XPD policy is straight in this.
    Anyway if you need let me know your size and I'll try to find.

    Hi Matteo,

    I'm just about ready to order a Marathon suit. I've checked your sizing chart and there is two large (L) sizes that I'm in between (Italian sizes 48 and 50), so I could do with some advice please. Also there is only one (L) size when ordering suit.... is this 48 or 50?

    I'm 177 cm high and chest measures 94cm. I weigh 77kg.

    Is there any discount if I were to order an Back Warr Evo back protector with the suit?

    I have broken one of the groin straps off my Netwin can these be purchased seperatley?

    and finaly which method of delivery do you recomend to Ireland?

    ManY Thanks

    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    your size is a L.
    Standard delivery to Ireland takes 2 to 3 days, so this will be good I believe.
    When you order it, send a message to infoservice@spidi.com , make your request for the Evo Back and for the groin straps, copy this message from advrider, I'm sure you'll be surprised.

    Hi Matteo,

    The suit was available in Large but when I try to purchase through the shop its saying it is not available in that size. I was ordering the Black/Orange 087 colour. I'm not sure if the sale concluded or not as I had processed the credit card details..... please advise

    thanks

    Tony
